Harmonix suing Viacom over unpaid bonuses
A group of former shareholders of Harmonix led by the developer's founders Alex Rigopulos and Eran Egozy over alleged unpaid bonuses.
The group allege that Viacom has failed to pay out bonuses from an earn out formula which would have seen the former owners paid out three and a half times any gross profit over the 32 million USD from 2007.
The law suit seeks to "recover damages arising from Viacom's manipulation of these earn-out payments by diverting opportunities from Harmonix for its own benefit in breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing that inheres in Viacoms contract with Harmonix."
Viacom has yet to comment on the suit which could potentially see them pay out some huge fees to Harmonix' former shareholders should the courts find in favour of the plaintiffs.
